Who Do You Serve?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents
Entitled to Overcome, (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

About the Show: Who Do You Serve?

Bob Dylan said, “You’re Going to Serve Somebody”. The question here is, who is it going to be? Are you going to serve God, yourself, others, the recovery program, your church, your addiction or simply hide behind bad coffee and pretend that you don’t serve anyone?
Recovery is a process of selflessness and service. It requires sacrifice and commitment and with it comes the opportunity to be of maximum service to God and the people He puts in our lives. Choose this day who you will serve.

Pain and Anguish

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

About the Show:

It has been said that in life pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional, but is it? The truth is, we sometimes give these pat answers and comments without considering what a person’s pain and anguish has been like. In this episode of the Take 12 Recovery Radio show we will be discussing the difference between pain and anguish and share some of our experience with both.

BEING A DOER OF THE 12 STEPS

Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life, Today)
 
How many times have we gone to Twelve Step meetings and read the Steps on the wall, heard them recited at the beginning of the meetings and even spoken about during the meeting? But how many of us practice, work and do these vital Steps? Is hearing about the Steps and attending meetings going to be the solution to our lack of sobriety and bring about real change? Some would think so, and yet most do not stay sober. Perhaps we need to hit the proverbial re-start button and take a look at being a doer of the Steps rather than simply a reader or hearer only.

Resigned to Addiction, Reconciled to God

THE VICTORY REPORT (Resigned to Addiction, Reconciled to God)

At age 13 our guest used methamphetamine for the first time. In two years he was up to his neck in legal issues, Jail, Probation including committing burglaries. Every relationship was surrounded around active addiction. It appeared that there was no threat of consequence that would stop Preston form a journey of self-destruction. Though Preston promised himself he would never use a needle, after High School I.V. drug use became the delivery method for the meth he was abusing. Alienated from his family and friends and surrounded with criminal felony charges, Preston heard the testimony of a former heroin user and something began to change in his thinking. Was this the hope he would find amid his hopelessness? Join the Monty’man and Denver Wolfe for this powerful story of experience, strength and hope shared on the episode of the Victory Report. A presentation of Take 12 Recovery Radio in cooperation with Teen Challenge of Arizona.

Closing Song: All That I Am by Jim Crain, performed by Doug & Donna

Sticks and Stones

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

Topic: Sticks & Stones, the Profanity, and the Profane.

‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’ is a stock response to verbal bullying in school playgrounds throughout the English-speaking world. It sounds a little antiquated these days and has no doubt been superseded by more streetwise comebacks. A response to an insult, implying that “You might be able to hurt me by physical force but not by insults”. But as men and women in recovery we know this to be anything but true. Word’s are powerful, they hurt, traumatize and can even lead to death. The profanity and the profane simply do us no good. ​ Closing Song: Sunny Day by Tom Storms www.tomstormsproductions.com

Cleaning Up the Wreckage of Our Past

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents

Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life, Today)

Cleaning up the wreckage of our past is something that people who are in long-term recovery make as a priority in their Twelve Step process, specifically in Step Nine as we make amends to those we have harmed. Sometimes this happens without incident, and other times it can be extremely stressful and challenging. We asked our listeners to share with us how long it has taken to clean up the wreckage of their past and what was their most grateful experience in doing so.
